The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation announced today (Wednesday) that it is in possession of the laptop of the son of Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Hunter Biden.
According to the New York Post, the correspondence on the computer contained correspondence between Biden Jr. and the heads of the Ukrainian "Burism" corporation, allegedly proving that his father had met and was in contact with company representatives.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation refused to confirm or deny the existence of an investigation regarding the information found on the computer and only confirmed that it was in their possession.
Snooping, the American news network Fox News reported today that senior detectives and the Department of Defense agree with National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe's assessment that the affair is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign and is unrelated to the Russian propaganda campaign, as some media outlets have claimed.
The allegations against the publications came after it was learned that the source of the information for the New York Post was the president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who had previously passed information from various sources in Russia to the President of the United States.
"Let me be very clear. The intelligence community does not believe this affair is part of a Russian disinformation effort because there is no intelligence information to support it. It is simply not true," Ratcliffe told the American News Network.
The American liberal media refrained from commenting on the affair, arguing that it may be a scam.
The social networks Facebook and Twitter even lowered visibility and deleted posts that dealt with the affair, which angered conservative lawmakers about the companies.
